About the Clinic
The Alpine Clinic was founded in 1998 by Dr. Dianne Farley-Jones for the purpose of encouraging healthy living and illness prevention while providing necessary medical care. This is accomplished through teaching and practicing medicine based on supporting the body’s normal physiological function rather than using drugs to suppress symptoms.
At the Alpine clinic we treat the whole person by evaluating each patient to assess the pattern of contributing factors in his or her health problems. We make recommendations for lifestyle changes and other therapies.
About the Dispensary
At The Alpine Clinic our approach to medicine is to provide to you information, knowledge and tools to achieve better health. We believe that better health comes through knowledge and application of mindful health practices. We believe strong and improved health can be achieved through good information about how the body works, and by a proper balance of quality vitamins, minerals and supplements to support the human body.
When Dr. Dianne Farley-Jones began the Alpine Clinic she quickly learned that finding quality supplements that meet her high standards was a challenge for her patients. As the internet began to take shape and the world of online shopping became the norm, it has become even more difficult to find trusted sources. Dr. Farley-Jones took it upon herself to do the hard work of sourcing vitamins, minerals and supplements for her patients so that she knew they were getting the best.
Every company and product in our Dispensary has been personally researched by Dr. Farley-Jones and her team. We have done the service of finding the best and highest quality sources so that you don’t have to! You can be confident you are getting the best.
We know that you can go to the local drug store or supermarket and find similar types of vitamins and supplements you will find in The Dispensary. But are you confident those supplements are of the highest quality and have meet stringent quality control standard?
